At Lifestyle Laser our Astanza ReSmooth laser emits flashes of light energy onto the unwanted spider vein. The light energy specifically targets the hemoglobin found in blood while leaving the surrounding skin tissue unharmed. The blood evaporates upon contact, causing the vessel or vein to collapse and eventually disappear.
Laser treatment can be performed on all parts of the body and is most successful on spider veins that are 1 mm to 3 mm. Smaller veins will see a drastic improvement with one single treatment, whereas larger veins may require multiple laser sessions for successful results.
Patients may experience slight bruising over the weeks following treatment. As the bruise heals, your skin will reveal vein-free skin and a clearer complexion.
